CORONAVIRUS — COVID-19 and Our Firm
At this time, Brown, Brown & Young, P.A. is operating at 100%, and will continue to do so, throughout the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. You can count on us!
Throughout the almost 120 years our firm has been in practice, our top priorities have always included the health and safety of our employees, business partners, clients and the community we are privileged to be a part of, and to serve.
For the safety of everyone, and in compliance with the Executive Orders as issued by Governor Hogan, we are limiting PHYSICAL ACCESS to our offices for both staff and clients alike. Those of us who have technology at home that allows full access to needed files and data may be working from home, with full confidentiality established for any files or information.
Other staff members may be working in the offices, observing the protections necessary to uphold our essential business practices, while remaining in full compliance with the Executive Order.

Please contact your attorney at Brown, Brown & Young for specific information relating to your matter or your appearance.
All Courts will accept filings and all forms of communications. District Courts are more fully open, for bail reviews, bench warrants, protective orders, guardianships and more.
